Close Encounter: Marine Wildlife Snorkeling

Ocean Quest

Close Encounter: Marine Wildlife Snorkeling

CAD$ 159.99
Get in the water and make some new friends! This adventure will take you into the ocean and allow you to swim alongside the many majestic creatures that grace us with their presence throughout the summer months.

In the distance, 300-500 feet away, you see a different shade of blue. It grows and brightens until it is white. It takes a moment to process that this is the underbelly of a humpback whale. How can anything living be so big? The whale surfaces for air and notices you. How curious and strange you must be to her. She decides to have a closer look. Her name is “Awwwoooooooooooowwweeeee” in her language, but she’s used to people mispronouncing it as “Oh my God!”

Marine mammals are amazing! No doubt about that, but that is not the sole purpose of this trip. Focused on snorkeling we are out to see all the creatures waiting below the surface. Whether it's a shallow cove, under a waterfall, or out in the open ocean, the Atlantic Ocean will be your own personal show of wonders.
